I hope everyone have a great 4th of July Monday, and remember what this day is really about. Have fun and celebrate, but most importantly be safe:
You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism. ~Erma Bombeck
So eat and drink your little hearts out, but remember those lives sacrificed for the freedom we have on this day. Many people lost their lives in battle, and many people lost their lives in the fight for freedom in roles both big and small.
There is nothing wrong with America that cannot be cured by what is right with America. ~William J. Clinton
